This is a bamboo thread spinning tool, used for yarn coiling, known as Danganatha. It is consisting of a central bamboo rod with a pointed end. The rod passes through four bamboo sticks, two each at two separate length of the rod. These sticks are again tied to the rod with threads. These four sticks again are connected by several other sticks running along the direction of the central rod. Generally, this cylindrical shaped spinning tool having a wooden handle is used to remove the knots of the thread with the help of a spinning wheel known as Zenther.
